Have you ever been attracted to someone just by looking at their lips? I know I have, especially those soft-looking pink ones. In this article, you’ll be reading how to take care of your lips naturally and get that instant attraction. Let’s get to it.
10 Ways to Take Care of Your Lips Naturally
1. Exfoliate Your Lips
Exfoliation is the process of removing dead and unwanted skin cells from the outer layer of your skin, in this case, your lips. Exfoliating the lips comes with precaution though over-exfoliating does more harm than good— The desire is to have soft-looking lips, not cracked lips or peeled lips.
How do I exfoliate my lips?
- Simply brush your lips with a toothbrush or a washcloth/towel.
- Make sure the towel or cloth is clean and free from germs and bacteria.
- Do this once a week only as excessive exfoliation leads to cracked and peeled lips. That’s just unhealthy and unattractive.
2. Try Using a Lip Scrub
Another good way how to take care of your lips naturally is by investing in a lip scrub. There are many lip scrubs available in stores or online but below is a link on how to make a lip scrub by yourself (Do-It-Yourself).
With this, you can choose your desired fruit and flavor and also save some money. Scrubbing the lips stimulate blood circulation and help to keep them healthy.
3. Stay Hydrated
When it comes to hydration, a habit one should cut out is “avoid licking your lips.” I’m still with you in this bad habit but I’m still trying to break free. Instead of licking the lips, apply a balm regularly.
Drinking lots of water helps in keeping the lips from drying out and of course, avoids licking the lips. Stay hydrated internally with water and externally with a lip balm.
4. Stop Smoking
“The Federal Ministry of Health warns that smokers are liable to die young.”
“Cigarette Smoking May Be Hazardous to Your Health.”
These are warnings we see on cigarette packs telling us how hazardous smoking is to us and simultaneously, it stains the lips and makes it unattractive.
5. Protect and Moisturize Your Lips
A good way of protecting and moisturizing your lips is to invest in a good quality lip balm. This is a sure way how to take care of your lips naturally.
You can directly apply Aloe Vera Gel to hydrate the lips, that’s if you can handle the bitter taste afterward. Haha.
6. Ladies, Take Off Your Makeup Before Bed
We’ve always been told this, take off your makeup before bed and make sure to take the lipstick off too. Even if there’s not a single sign of colour on your lip, give it a gentle touch with a makeup removing wipe. Throw in some lip balm to moisturize and lay your pretty head to sleep.
7. Reapplying Lip Balm
Being consistent is the key when it comes to this DIY. Choose the lip balm that works for you and stick to the product. There are lip balms with SPF for sun protection. If you can’t invest in that, make a choice of what works or simply make one.
8. Massage Your Lips
Massaging the lips helps in blood circulation and ensures nutrients is been transported to the lips. Massage your lips with essential oils such as coconut, olive, lavender, frankincense, chamomile oil for about 3 minutes every day or whenever you can. Investing your time in this is a sure way of how to take care of your lips naturally.
9. Have a Balanced Diet
“You’re what you eat” they always say. Fruits and vegetables are fortified with essential vitamins such as A, C, E, and minerals for repairing damage, exposure to the sun, and retaining moisture. Ensure you stay hydrated with water and eat fruits and vegetables such as strawberries, carrots, spinach, green vegetables, and eggs.
10. Avoid Touching or Licking Your Lips
Our lips do not have a protective barrier of their own and as such, we should try as much as possible to avoid licking or touching them. When you lick your lips, which feels nice by the way, you moisten the area, and immediately, the air is blown into it.
In the process, you are exposing your lips to dry air and microorganism accumulating which we don’t see. This could then lead to cracking or chapping of the lips which are unhealthy.
Now that you know how to take care of your lips naturally, happy kissing! Comment below on what homemade lip balm or scrub you made.
